The tournament is coming back to Heritage Golf Club from 30th November – 3 December 2017 and will be attracting top international players. This 72-hole stroke play championship will oppose 158 professional golf players, comprising of 40 top players from each of the participating tours during a four-day event. The scores from this tournament count towards the individual tours’ Order of Merit and Race to Dubai with a total prize fund for the taking of 1 million Euros.
